Smithfield*, NYC’s newest sports bar in a class of its own, celebrates its Grand Opening this Tuesday, May 22, 6-8pm.
Built by veterans of the New York bar biz (Lunasa, Nevada Smiths), Smithfield emerges as a premier destination in the heart of Manhattan, just a few blocks from Madison Square Garden (Go Rangers!).
Smithfield is located at:
215 West 28th St. (btwn 7th & 8th Ave)
The product of nearly two years of hard work, the three floor tavern greets you with beautiful reclaimed wood, exposed brick, and warm lighting. State of the art LED HDTV’s are strategically placed throughout the ground floor bar for an unfettered view of your favorite sports event no matter where you sit. The Market Bar on the second floor, with windows opening on to 28th Street, has a more intimate atmosphere whilst retaining the vintage theme and is perfect for private parties and events. Finally, on our mezzanine, we have The Wallace Room, named after the famous Scottish rebel, Sir William Wallace better known to most as Braveheart. Rich mahogany and leather couches with a private bathroom and service bar are features of the room.
In addition to all local sports teams, Smithfield will show all live soccer games from around the world and will offer locally produced food at reasonable prices. The classic American menu — read: seriously, not your average bar fare — will feature locally sourced products wherever possible and the draught will focus on local craft beers. Check out the extraordinary menu here. Teaser: The Smithfield Burger — Angus beef, candied foie gras, shaved truffles, 100 year aged balsamic reduction.

Smithfield…combines classic elements of the football bar, traditional Irish pub and lounge, and fine restaurant into a beautifully designed and thought out package that is unique, friendly, and affordable.
